The regulations say that: you must be given clear information about the goods or services before you buy, goods must be delivered within thirty days unless agreed otherwise, there is a 'cooling off period' where you can cancel the contract to buy for any reason. The usual rules that apply to shopping on the high street also apply to distance selling. So adverts and descriptions must not be misleading and goods must be of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose, meaning they can do the job they were made for.
